My system came with a Nvidia PCIe card. I would like to remove this card and use the integrated graphics. Whenever I remove the PCIe the system will just beep, and the integrated wouldn't work. I went in the bios but cannot find anything to enable the integrated. Thankshttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Video-Display-and-Touch/Z240-Integrted-graphics/td-p/5628346
I am trying to setup my new HP Z240 workstation, but cannot get the graphics card to operate at any resolution above 1024 X 768. The graphics card is an NVIDIA QUADRO K620. It is connected to the monitor with a DVI-D Dual link cable. The monitor is an HP w2408. The monitor has two inputs (DVI and VGA). I have the VGA input connected to another HP computer with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 card (this computer/card/monitor displays at 1920 x1200). When I checked the adapter modes (using the list modes option), the best mode listed is 1024 x 768. The NVIDIA spec sheet lists the max resolution with DVI-I as 2560 x 1600 or 1920 x 1200. What can I do to get the max resolution from my monitor (1920 x 1200)?
Update. Problem solved. When I realized that the monitor in DVI mode was not being recognized as PNP, it pointed to the monitor as the problem. Installed new monitor, everythng works as it should. Evidently the VGA input to the old monitor functioned properly while the DVI portion was defective (card or cable connection).

When I download graphics card driver 15.20.1045 (sp73511.exe) from the HP site and install this, the properties display 15.200.1045.So I'm now not sure if the corect driver is installed, because I'm still getting graphics card errors. Our software supplier PTC recommends the certified 15.20.1045-version so how do I get this right?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Graphics-Card-driver-Z240/td-p/5847833
Hi. I am trying to run the intel onboard graphics and an nvidia quaddro on the same machine simultaneously. HP says it is possible to do so but I cannot find the option in the BIOS to enable the onboard graphics as a primary driver. Right now, the onboard graphics cards becomes automatically disabled as soon as I plug the Nvidia in.

my computer beeps 5 times how do i troubleshoot the problem. do you have a list of beep codes
First of all, what's the make & model of the PC?
I have fitted an ECS K7VZA Mobo running with a Duron 800 chip.with 64mb sdram 100mhz & ATI Rage Fury Graphics I cannot get any further than the boards initil boot,I have read somewhere that some boards do this if the fan is incorrectly fitted,is that correct
A friend asked me to help with a problem on his PC.
He's daughter switched the pc on in the morning and left for school before it loaded up.
when she returned home there was a black screen with a flashing curser in top left hand corner.
She turned the computer off at the wall without shutting down.
Now the machine starts up but no beep code.
To Date I've changed the power supply for a know good one.
Changed the cmos battery for a new one.
Removed the ram and started up, no beep code.
I suspect that this indicates a fault on the motherboard.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to TSG
Now when you turn the system on do you get anything on the monitor?
I have a Dell stuidio xps 435t, and at random times the monitors will shut off yellow light will come on and start the 6 beep code, if I hit the power button it then starts up takes me to the windows screen and does a normal boot up, any ideas ? could it be my video card ? Thanks in advancehttp://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19974538
Hello to all,
My system is booting up but with two beeps. Is that normal for asus motherboards - m2n.
I'm aware that is usual for some motherboards. Thanks very much.
What memory(Ram) do you have in that PC??
I recently posted that my comp wouldn't boot. Well, I thought I may have blown the mobo so I changed it (Asus 8NA SLI Deluxe), seeing as I didn't even get beep codes on start-up. However, after installing a new mobo (same one as above) I now get a beep code...one long, two short (I can hear the intake of breath)....
After checking Bios Central and FAQ's here, it appears I have a video adapter error. I've taken the video card out, put it in, sworn at it etc, etc...but still the beeps.
Would it also be the case that my video card is knackered?
I'd appreciate some advice guys n girls before I burn another lump of cash..
500w Mercury PSU
2 x 250gb HDD
Asus A8n SLI Deluxe
Nvid 6800 Ultra GFx
One way to check for certain if it is you video card that`s fried, is to try it in another system.
However, the beep codes are usually quite accurate. Therefore, if it says your video card is broken, then probably it is.
Hi I have an FIC AZ motherboard pulled from a working compaq presario with a ghz AMD athlon installed anyone why? code, beep know no with a heatsink I added a cd drive floppy drive and gb hard drive from another desktop that im sure was working I bought a new RADEON video card and added that There is also one DIMM memory in place When I turn no beep code, anyone know why? on the computer all the fans start blowing and I hear the hard drive make that start up noise but the monitor light is not turning green which means the display signaled isn t going from the computer to the monitor and it is hooked up fine But my biggest problem is that I hear NO BEEP CODE One beep would mean normal but I hear none at all Would the video card not no beep code, anyone know why? being in place completely cause this I thought if there were a problem would anything the speaker would beep a certain beep code to indicate the problem I m sure the speaker is plugged in correctly to the front panel connector Is it possible the cpu is dead what is going onn I would really really appreciate any help as soon as possible THANKS VERY MUCH nbsp
Okay I have a compaq presario laptop. When I start up computer, screen is black. Then beep code 1-3-4, which means first 64k RAM odd/even logic error. Question is, what do I do now. Is this something I can attempt to fix myself.....or is my computer completely wrecked?
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/compaqbeep.htm. this usually means your video card has failed. Video adapters are soldered onto the motherboard and cannot be replaced except by factory. You can try running Memtest to see if the RAM fails.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/compaq-beep-code-1-3-4-a-506678.html
Alrighty, I have a Toshiba Satellite A120. I have been have blue screens of death and other things happeing. Well I just got done saving my paper for school and it just shutdown outta nowhere. Then I got Three short beeps and three long beeps. I restarted and when Windows came back on it said that it had recovered from a serious error.
Here are the specs on the laptop.

Thanks for you time.
Not sure what bios you have. Does it tell you when you are booting?
Take a look at this.
Can anyone tell me what 3 beeps mean, my board is Intel D945 GCCR. My computer beeps 3 times and then just won't start up and also that this beep thing doesn't always happen, it happens sometimes and other times the system will boot quite normally.
Mobo - Gigabyte nForce3 250
i powered off pc to connect an IDE cd-drive. upon powering back on thats when i started receiving beep code.
i then disconnected the cd-drive to boot as pc originally was and received the same beep code.
when powering on all fans are running. monitor stays at black screen. meanwhile receiving beep code.
its a long beep repeating every 4 secs. i still havent found a way to decode it yet or have any remote idea as to what could be wrong. ill continue looking for a way to decode this. thx
i know that the bios manufacter is Award, but they are now owned by Phoenix industries. not sure when the new ownership came into play.
turns out that Phoenix bios code for long repetitive beeps is a memory error. hmm. so bad ram maybe?
Trying to figure out what is wrong with my Compaq Evo D300v.
When I try to boot I get one beep then two longs beeps.
Read somewhere that the beeps indicate bad video card. Is this correct?
I was careless yesterday when I moved my computer while refurnishing the room. Pulled out the cord from the back of the tower without shutting down what was running. I know, my bad. Didn't think apparently. Left my brain someplace else. Also when I lifted the tower and tilted it towards me a bit I heard a noise as if something moved inside. I have looked inside and can't see any loose cords or anything like that.
Is there anything I can do about this? Grateful for advice.
There are so many versions of your computer it's hard to say what your beep codes mean. Some were made with pentium processors others were made with celeron. some are desktop, some are workstations.
I found this, but it may not even apply. Depends on your motherboard. It would help if we knew exactly what parts your particular PC was made with. It's extremely unhelpful when a certain model of PC applies to several very different hardware configurations. It's even more frustrating when the manuals don't have a list of beep codes and their meanings. Precisely why I hate manufactured PC's. I searched all manuals for your PC and this is all I could find about beep codes.
CAUTION: Some models support ECC memory and some support
non-ECC memory. For those systems that do support ECC, Compaq
does not support mixing ECC and non-ECC memory. Doing so will
cause the system to blink the NUMLOCK LED on the keyboard
continuously and, if a speaker is installed in the system, there will be a
short beep followed by 2 long beeps. In addition, the system will not
boot the operating system.
I just realized that I get this one short beep right after I push the power button to turn on my machine. Then it boots up and runs just fine. After looking back through my A+ Managing and Trouble shooting PC book and found out that it's normal to here one or two short beeps that informs me that all is well. I don't remember hearing any beeps on my retail PC's on boot up. Is it me or is something wrong.
Look in the back of your motherboard's brochure for details or Upgrading and Repairing PC's 19th Edition. It should be OK, but my mobo had no speaker to hook up so no beeps.http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/64492-mobo-beep-code.html
ok... a few day ago I downloaded this program from this bad site and when I was installing it I was getting Hard Disk errors and then I pressed end now and my machine rebooted and told me I needed a boot disk. So I restarted it many times and it kept giving me HDD errors and CMOS errors. So I turned it off and back on and the screen was blank. So I came on here last nite and pyritechips and branden were very helpful and told me to take the CMOS battery out and let it sit over night. SO I did and now I am getting two short beeps and eight long beeps and a blank screen..
Can someone please help me
Thank You... I am running XP on my machine btw.. this is my hubby's..
The closest thing I could find is 1 short beep and 8 long... that is a video card problem. You should try to reseat (remove and reinstall the cards on your computer... one may have come loose. I would also suggest to check all of the cables to see if they are still tight. If that doesn't work, let us know some information about the computer, including the type of Motherboard/BIOS you have.
Motherboard: Foxconn M61PML-K
RAM : Kingston 2 Gig/DDR3 1333
Scenario: PC turn on but no display, but after trying some troubleshooting afterwards its getting Non Stop SHORT BEEP same as when i remove the RAM, Since i already check some beep codes for ami ive never seen beep code like this. i dont have any xtra RAM to try but i will try to find soon, but as of now i need some opinion if do u think its really a ram problem. thanks in advance
Make sure your RAM is fully seated, and if you have a graphics card make sure it is fully seated, and the electrical connection is tight(that is, if it has a electrical plug)http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/277332-beep-code-problem.html

When you deleted 98, you deleted the boot info for XP, that is why you couldnt get into XP. The 98 partition held the info. You could try loading 98 onto it, then load PartitionMagic & see if you can view the Partitions. If the XP partition was NTFS, fdisk cant set it active. It reads the partition as non-DOS, and can only delete it. It might even take a few attempts to delete it, but it will. It has happened to me on occasion. The beeps indicate a problem, & should have been investigated first, esp if only one OS had them. Could have been an incompatible driver in 98.
My HP9680c wont boot. The beep is saying theres a memory problem, either its missing or unseated, so I switched the ram around with known good ram, and it's still giving the same code. Is the beep code fool proof, whats the next step?
The beep codes are based on the BIOS maker. Google for both Phoenix BIOS beep code and Award BIOS beep code. It's been years since I last had to look them up. You'll find some interesting info about the beep codes. One of them has a default beep that I think is the the same as the RAM error beep on the other.
I have a Toshiba laptop my friend asked me to look at. At startup, I am getting a continous blast of short beeps.
anybody has an issue with 3 long beep and 2 short beep with a Gtaeway NE722 laptop. Also the smart touch pad is not workiong at the same time
Have you changed any hardware on this notebook or opened it for any reason? Looking at the codes makes me think that something is not installed correctly, ,a stick of memory might be bad, or the motherboard itself is going/has gone bad.

Hi, my cousin's computer is acting up. When you turn it on, it gives a beep code. The beep code is one short beep, one long beep. I've read it's a memory problem, but I don't know. What can I do to troubleshoot and identify the issue?
Hey guys, I'd like to first apologize if this is in the wrong area of the forums, I'm new to TechGuy.
Grandma has a Dell Desktop(no specific model), but she was using her computer and it immediately shut off on her. She tried to turn it back on and got 4 brief beeps back to back. (beep beep beep beep........beep beep beep beep........etc etc). Tried looking for common issues, so far I'm concerned it might be either the motherboard or memory failure. Any tips will help, thanks in advance.
Hello again A friend of mine brought me his Dell Dimension to fix The unit had assorted spyware trojans a virus etc It had XP home on Dell code Beep problem it I only had a copy of XP pro so I reinstalled Dell Beep code problem it instead of home I deleted the old partitions in the process and created a new one I installed a firewall and antivirus Dell Beep code problem program I ran all the MS updates I defragged the HDD and after one long day I had it all dialed in Until I rebooted that is Then I noticed that the unit will not power up unless I depress the power button for about seconds The unit then gives long and short beeps and boots to Windows where everything seems to be in order and working fine The Dell website lists the beeps as quot IDE subsystem failure quot but I see no visual indications of anything amiss Any help on this is greatly appreciated Thank you nbsp
Did you by chance download and install the Chipset Drivers and all the motherboard drivers from Dell? These will be needed if you did not.

Hello does it start in safe mode ?
Hi to all, I have an IBM Aptiva E series 276, which has the AMD K-6 2, and the mother board is an Acer V75M. We have had this comp for at least 4-5 years, bought it brand new. I never noticed before because it is wifes comp, but was on it the other day, and upon startup, no beep code. Asked wife, and she said it has never made a beep on startup. I went to a beep code site for IBM, and it said no beep = power supply. Question is it`s been like this since new, and it is still running, if there is a power supply problem, why is it still running? Was wondering if anyone has run into anything like this before. I mean I hate to replace the power supply, since the comp is still working like it always has. Any ideas appreciated.
I have a HP/Compaq D220 MT computer that is giving an 8 beep code over and over at startup. I have no video no nothing on screen. When i remove the memory it gives the correct memory beep error (3) i have removed all periferals and removed power and data cables from all devices except the MB. HP is SLOOOOOOW at trying to get Tech Support and their "live help" is kinda useless if your not using the computer that has the problem ( if i can use the computer that has the problem then why do i need LIVE HELP LOL) Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
I believe it is a video card problem. Try reseating the video card or try a new one.

Hey, I solved my own problem-bad keyboard (the 3rd one the kids went thru this year..grrr...)
this is my first post on this site, I couldnt find any info on this problem anywhere else on the internet, so i decided to ask on here.
ok here's the problem, I bought a new PC (specs below i believe) and now that i have got everything together the machine is beeping, i looked up the beep codes but it isnt doing any of the ones i could find on line, from what i can here it is a 2-2-2-2 code, which i cant find anywhere.
does anyone have any ideas what my problem could be, i dont want to install windows 7 until i get this fixed.
My Brother-in-law has an old computer circa that he wanted to resurrect for his kids to play on He asked me to get it running and told me that the only thing he was aware of that was wrong was that the computer was not recognizing the CD-ROM drive an essential for kids software He also wanted me to prepare Boot. Help! Please No Video, no on Beep Code it for possible networking in the near future It was loaded with Win so first thing I was going to do was to do a clean install of Win SE and that would possibly No Video, no Beep Code on Boot. Please Help! fix the CD-ROM problem However since the computer had been sitting for a while about a year I wanted to do some inside cleaning and check the CMOS battery Upon opening it up I decided to take an inventory while cleaning and I removed the heatsink and fan off the socket processor It s No Video, no Beep Code on Boot. Please Help! a Pentium with MMX Since it doesn t say P I m guessing it s a P but I m not sure I removed the battery CR and it tested at V so it was OK Now I may have made a mistake by not putting it back in very quickly It was out for about an hour After reinstalling the CMOS battery and the heatsink and fan on to the processor I attempted to boot No Video, no Beep Code on Boot. Please Help! up but there was no video and no beep code The power is on as the hard drive was turning and all LED lights except those on the keyboard were lit In an attempt to troubleshoot I unhooked everything including the RAM sticks but the power the processor and the video card there is no onboard video but the same thing happened no video and no beep code Therefore the problem has to be with the processor including the heatsink and fan CMOS the video card or the motherboard The MOBO is a P VX DM Explorer II made by QDI but their website http www qdigrp com was not much help Does anybody have any ideas on where I go next nbsp
A friends pc, with bios password. I've replaced the battery to get rid of the password. Pc gives one long and three short beeps while booting, and stops after that. I've checked the videocard - without success.

I'm trying to figure out this darn beep code for this motherboards bios, but I can't seem to figure out the type of bios, if anyone has a way to figure this out, I'd appreciate it, It's a ABIT-KG7 RAID board, and the bios is giving me a single, long, non-stop repetative beep, like this
beeeeeeeeeeeeeep.....beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.....beeeeeeeeeeeeeep (endless repeating)
Thanks, I'd appreciate it, it's my girl's father's pc, LOL
I'd appreciate it, please, LOL, help me, help me, I'm assuming it needs new ram, but just trying to not make assumptions I'm not sure about.
RAM errors? Overheating errors? BIOS need to be reset?
I suggest you edit your post to a proper one, since your post do not contain useful info. making a good thread will be better for everyone.
Tell us the complete system specs, when this has happen, what have you do recently before and then we can help you.
Welcome to techspot.
My Dell will not boot up. It will not get to the Dell logo screen. After power on, it stays on the black screen and beeps 3 times. I've found info on the web that it leads to a bad system board. How reliable is that diagnosis? Is there a CD I can use to boot from to diagnose it better.
I had the same issue with Dell inspirion 5423 after installing Windows 10.
First, I followed this manual to remove CMOS battery:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BThpfrNRzFE

Hi I have a ASUS CUSL -C Jumper Free PC AGP x Motherboard We correctly flashed and up graded the Bios to teh latest version and it was working fine Then another day I turned on the Computer and got start up beep codes Three beeps then a very short pause the the other two beeps the th and th were a high not beep in Manual is Bios that code listed the low beep I looked at the manual on page and there is Bios beep code that is not listed in the Manual no reference to these codes The closest that I could come to it was Bios beep code that is not listed in the Manual teh posibility of it being a video card I bought another one - put it in and apparently it was not the video card Oh well - I guess it is going off to the repair shop Taking it back to where I had it built I checked everything to see it things were tight and in place I am not good at this sort of thing I had teh computer built years ago so I guess I got plenty of miles out of it nbsp
Thanks to anyone who looks at this post these forums have been a great help for years. Appreciated
The PC froze in the middle of a game of Machines with a friend. Could not Ctrl-Alt-Del after 15min used manual shut down.
Now when booting I seem to get 2 tiny beeps (could be the keyboard) then about 10 seconds later 9 beeps. Nothing loads, no display. This link shows beep code errors.
Abit IL9 Pro
2 Gig Ram @ 333Mhz
Radeon x1950 Pro
Any idea what I need to do next to isolate the broken hardware and test the machine?
Hopefully it won't be too expensive to replace
Have you tried to clear the CMOS? Usually there is a jumper that you move to accomplish this.
If that doesn't work, try removing everything you can, all USB connected devices, drives, adapter cards, etc. Even the video card, at least to test. See if anything changes. You may get a different beep code for the missing video card. Remove the memory, maybe swap them (if you have two sticks), or try one at a time. It may very well be that the motherboard has met it's proverbial maker ...
I got a Dell Optiplex GX280 tower, P4 3.2Ghz DDR2. When I start it up there is a long beep followed by 5 short beeps. I know the beeps mean something, but I don't exaclty know. I've tried changing the RAM, to no avail. Could it be video, because there is no signal to the screen?
See if this thread might help The complete BIOS beep guide
My computer will not boot up. I have an Asus A7V-E mb with a Duron 1 ghz cpu with 256 MB of ram.
After turning on the pc I get 1 long beep followed by 3 short beeps. Anyone have any idea what error that the beeps is giving?
I switched out the ram - no help. I tried the mb outside the case with only the video card- no help.
Thanks for the help.
It depends on what bios you have. Take a look here for beep codes....
Hi, if someone could help me would be great! I receive this 7beep code from the motherboard every time I try to boot my inspiron duo 1090, nothing on screen just a 7 beep code not like 3-2-2 or 3-4 or something is a 1-1-1-1-1-1-1. I saw around the net that this is common and is just a fake alarm from the motherboard, and that dell support have told ppl to just press the FN key while booting and that bypasses the P.O.S.T. and boots like nothing again, some ppl say the just left they're computer there and tried like 2 weeks later and booted like normal. I tried this FN key to bypass the P.O.S.T. but NOTHING happened and my duo is out of warranty already and I don't wanna pay for a fake code or something please somebody help me =(
I found an American webpage telling how to solve this within half an hour. At first I thought is was mad. I was desperate so I tried it.With the laptop on and beeping away wrap it up tightly in a large towel and place under the duvet. Leave it for 1/2 hour and then unwrap and switch off. Leave it to cool down and then switch on. I writing this on a dell laptop that had the 7 beeps and the above treatment.It works!!!http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19391927
Hi I have an M A-VM motherboard and stupidly as it turns out especially as I m an IT professional and should know better I decided to up rate my memory using memory from a donor machine now after installing code beep RAM error and removing here comes the stupid part I looked at the RAM and thought that looks right without checking whether it was DDR it wasn t I installed it powered on the machine and got beep beep code error after installing and removing RAM long short repeating so I removed the offending RAM But I m beep code error after installing and removing RAM still getting the beep long short repeating and beep code error after installing and removing RAM all I did was install that one RAM stick So I investigated the beep codes for my AWARD bios and this is the closest I can find Long Beep Short Beeps One long beep followed by three short beeps means that either the video card isn t installed or the memory on the video card is bad Reseating or replacing the video card will typically fix the cause of this Award beep code But it cannot be the graphics card as I hadn t touched it and its brand new less than weeks old but I removed and reseated it just in case but the error reoccurred so I tried other things without success including Reseating the original RAM Installing a new PSU Removing the graphics card completely Disconnecting everything apart from the CPU fan and CPU power connector In desperation even removed the four pin out black and yellow CPU power cable and that s the only thing that stop the beeping The only thing a haven t tried is reseating the Processor and Fan but that seems to be major overkill as it was working perfectly prior to this There is power getting to the MB the fans spin the drives flash but I cannot find the cause of the error beeps and its driving me Have I managed to fry my memory or god forbidden the processor And you know the really annoying thing- I reinstalled the offending RAM back into the donor machine which I m now using to type this message Please Help as I m out of ideas nbsp

I have the similar problem as the guy below but I have not replaced anything other than tested with another good PSU and the same problem comes up
HP Pavilion A6030N Desktop PC
Nettle2-gl8e + fans spinning strange
The problem is that when I plug in the PC, there is no video no beep codes all fans run . When I hold the power button for 5 seconds to power off the fans(both) automatically spin up to high until I unplug the power from the PSU. . Motherboard: MCP61PM-HM Rev 1.0B
I have gone through trouble shooting removed all components no blown capacitors on motherboard.
when I removed the memory still no beep codes makes me believe motherboard is shot.
Any suggestions for what might be wrong here? I'm stumped.
It sounds like a motherboard failure. To troubleshoot go here;
and follow the directions under the heading; You assembled the system, and it will not post
Whether it's a mass produced or custom built machine, troubleshooting is the same.

The computer does not get past the POST. It gives a long approximately 15 second tone followed by a 10 second pause and another long tone and this sequence repeats indefinitely.No screen display. I replaced the power supply but same beep POST beep code. I removed the RAM cards and got a different beep code long beep followed by a short beep. I see others have reported this problem. Any successful fix?
Hi there @John2569, May the Forums be with you! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.

My laptop has been shutting off randomly. This has happened before but more frequebtly lately (2 weeks ago for about 2 days or about 8 tries, then problem went away). Now its happening again, sometimes on playing a video, sometimes just surfing the web. When it shuts down, it gives a fearful beep code and light code. Please see video in link.
I haven't been able to turn on the laptop recently as it just shuts down before the windows load. Also I cannot complete the diagnosis without shut down. I tried contacting dell but response is slow.
Does anyone experience this or know what is wrong?
Hi I've seen like a million other threads for this particular problem with just about every kind of possible solution there could be However as no two computers can be identical I'd give it a shot and boot Sleep or code No display, Mode after beep get some help on this one No display, beep code or boot after Sleep Mode After attempting to resume Win from Sleep none of my displays awoke so I shut the system down checked all cables and leads for the monitors As it were no issues I booted my PC to be presented with a whole lot of Nothing All drives and fans were functioning my DVDROM did it's little check for CDs all the normal crap only it neither woke up or brought me to GRUB Thus far I've reset CMOS done No display, beep code or boot after Sleep Mode bare bones booting tried my GPU HDDs and PSU in my several other self built machines No problems no drama I'm yet to test my CPU and RAM in another machine as I don't actually have another capable of it at present I'm also quite unsure on whether my speakers works or no I've tried several with no beep codes As of right now it's still set up for bare bones booting I should also mention that the power button needs to be held to kill the system on an attempted boot Any ideas or help would be appreciated specs will be posted below Cheers for the assistance OS Windows Ultimate bit amp Fedora PSU Ritmo Force CPU Intel Dual-Core Ghz E MOBO Asus P G T-M LX RAM x Kingston GB DDR - KVR D N G HDDs Seagate Barracuda GB - ST AS Western Digital GB - WD AAKB GPU ECS GT alternative MSI N GT EDIT Any suggestion would help including quot try hitting it with a sledgehammer quot as a valid idea Could it be possible the BIOS is damaged or corrupted from a failed wake up EDIT Strange Just tried to boot it to find that there is an odd problem First attempted boot it took around seconds for the PC to start Once it did it powered off and back on again Second attempt it took around seconds to boot this time with no powering off and on It would appear the PSU might be the culprit I also noticed the PSU fan took a little to get going after power up Going to retest the PSU in an another machine and will edit with results SUB-EDIT PSU continues to function normally in other systems So what could be the possible culprit It would appear to be either a mobo or a CPU problem Unsure on if there could be much else Require input on this
EDIT3: As it so happens... It seems to be booting successfully now. I've put all hardware, cables and leads back to their original locations and it boots, or so I assume. The activity indicator now does it's job when the PC is booted, and my reset button works once again. I still require to hold the power button to kill my system, but I believe that is due to ASUS TurboKey (Makes power button auto overclock PC on-the-fly). Displays still don't function. Going to attempt my alternative GPU and will re-edit with results. USB mouse and keyboard also appear to not function, which is normal at certain stages of my boot up. The only times they function during boot is at BIOS, GRUB and once I've launched my OS. Still, could be a potential problem indicator.
EDIT4: No change. Main, alternative and onboard, it doesn't matter what, it doesn't display anything.
EDIT5: The CPU and RAM are fully functioning in another system, it would appear either the BIOS isn't receiving the power up signal or it's damaged/corrupted. Unfortunately, I cannot flash the BIOS or restore it. Problem solved.. Sort of. Going to replace it, but keep it incase either myself or someone else stumbles upon a possible solution. I'd like to request this thread stays open incase anyone has ideas, or I find the solution so it can be archived at least. Thanks for, well, allowing me to brain storm.
Any help and ideas would still be appreciated.

Just picked up a Satellite Pro 6100 with a few problems.
It will turn on, the HDD light shows and I can hear drive activity. However, the screen remains blank and a single beep can be heard after about 20secs. The blank screen I understand, it is probably the power board issue that plagues the SP6xxx series. However, the single beep I don't understand.
I know 2 beeps or 3 beeps is memory incompatibility but does anyone know what the single beep denotes ?
To be honest it?s not easy to say what is causing the problem because it could be everything and Satellite Pro 6100 is pretty old notebook.
Have you installed two RAM modules? If yes remove one module. Try always one module only at the same time and test it in RAM slot A and B. Maybe one module is defective or one slot.
If not it seems to be a problem with mainboard or CPU itself. If you can exchange these things, try it yourself because a repair would be too expensive for this oldie I think.
Second hand spare parts you can get on eBay? It?s worth a try! ;)
I keep experiencing random crashes. Due to the fact that it happens at any time I can only provide the information attached in the zip. I still hope some kind and knowledgeable soul will be able to help me out.

Hi This started like a month ago when I tried to boot my laptop but instead I was getting this L702X RAM code module 2nd beep 4 XPS17 installed is when beep code RAM read write failure What I did then was removing switching XPS17 L702X 4 beep code when 2nd RAM module is installed memory modules until I found one of them wasn t working the one on DIMM A slot So I order new RAM install it and laptop works fine for about two weeks Just today I tried to boot and got the beep code again Same old remove one module test replace the module test but this time whenever I fill the DIMM A slot the laptop won t boot beep code of course I can use any of my RAM sticks on DIMM B and the computer will work fine which means that my memory sticks aren t bad I d appreciate any ideas Thanks --Pablo FYI I have GB RAM modules of them are the Corsair RAM I recently bought and the other one came originally with the laptop Hynix

Good day wonderful tech people code possible memory beep - BIOS Dell failure? I ve been using my Dell Vostro for about three years now and besides a few repairs here and there have had Dell BIOS beep code - possible memory failure? a generally positive experience Unfortunately after watching a little Firefly last night and shutting down my laptop for the evening I awoke this morning to be greeted by a blank screen and a BIOS beep code long short means that there has been some sort of memory error according to the manual I have two sticks of the memory that came with the laptop - GB Hynix HYMP S CP - Y and I tried all of the permutations of reseating removing them The idea that two sticks would fail at the same time seems not very probable Which brings us to a painful possibility and what I want to ask y all about I know this model of Dell along with a few others is slightly infamous for a faulty Nvidia GPU Do you think that might be cause of this problem Between the screen that refuses to display anything and the memory sticks that seem just fine I m getting worried Since this is past the warranty I bought it from Newegg three years ago would it mean a motherboard replacement As a DIY kinda person would it be feasible for me to order a motherboard and replace it myself Thank y all kindly nbsp
Hate to do this, but bump?
Am I in the wrong place? Anybody care to help direct me to the right place? Thankee kindly,
When I power on my system, all the fans, lights, etc. spin up but I get no display on my computer monitors. I tried step-for-step, the post diagnostics from this tutorial up untill I took out the RAM sticks. That was when I received the post beep code "1long beep and 2 short beeps." After this I tried replacing the CMOS battery with a new one and I still got no signal. I even tried connecting the video cables to the motherboard instead of the GPU. I researched the beep code; "An error was encountered in the video BIOS ROM, or a horizontal retrace failure has been encountered." How can this be fixed?
Where are you sticking the cable to the motherboard and not gpu? Is this the board listed in your specs on here because that has no onboard video on it and you must use a add-in gpu. If your VBIOS is messed up on the 970 it might be rma time.http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/392472-no-display-when-powering-computer-beep-code-1long-2short.html
Currently running a Supermicro C code C2SBX when inserted board Beep 4-2-3-3 Supermicro into ATI HD5770 SBX with fanless Gigabyte ATI HD inserted It's been running fine for two years Dual monitors I recently replaced my old CRT monitor with a new LCD monitor so now I have two quot Eizo monitors each running at x Unfortunately the HD only has one DVI connector so I've been running the new second LCD in analog mode using the VGA cable It still looks beautiful at x but I'd really Beep code 4-2-3-3 when ATI HD5770 inserted into Supermicro C2SBX board like to run it digitally meaning I need a Beep code 4-2-3-3 when ATI HD5770 inserted into Supermicro C2SBX board second DVI connector So I purchased a Sapphire Vapor-X ATI HD card which has two DVI connectors Seemed just about perfect even though I was really wanting another fanless card But this Vapor-X card has very positive reviews for silence Anyway I cannot boot the machine with the HD inserted into the same PCIe x slot that the HD currently lives in No other changes in the machine were made so it's exactly the same except for the swapped video cards With the HD inserted there is no video output from either DVI connector and instead the Supermicro C SBX Phoenix BIOS v beeps - - - Beep code - - - means quot extended block move quot which suggest a problem with video memory i e mapping it conflict with onboard graphics etc although none of the possible causes mentioned by other users with similar problems on the Internet seem relevant to my situation Furthermore trying out the HD in my second machine which has an ASUS P Q motherboard in it sees it work perfectly So the new video card is not defective and in fact does work perfectly in that other ASUS P Q motherboard Obviously there is some issue with the Supermicro C SBX board although both boards support PCIe which is what this HD video card uses I believe It's not a power issue I don't think as the C SBX machine has a W PSU whereas the P Q machine has a W PSU Yes there are additional drives and cards in the C SBX machine but honestly I don't think this is power related It's most likely some other BIOS incompatibility between the C SBX and HD that just is not a problem when using the HD Anybody have any thoughts or suggestions Any BIOS engineer experts out there who have experience with - - - extended block move in Phoenix BIOS This is already the second HD I've tried since I RMA'd the first one believing it to be defective However since this second card works perfectly in the P Q I'm certain this card is not defective
At the risk of being insulting:
Did you remove the Catalyst suite before swapping cards?
I'm not sure whether the machine would properly recognize the swap if the old drivers stayed.
Does your 4850 have an HDMI connection? If so, there are HDMI to DVI adapters available. (These are cheap, passive adapters.) The nVidia Quadro card on my workstation at my job uses one to connect the second monitor (with a DVI port). That would have been a cheap alternative to swapping graphics cards.

I've just purchased an ATI RADEON 9600 Pro 256 mb graphics card, I'm running XP Pro but I can't even get into the bios. There is no beep and nothing ever appears on the monitor. I know the card is good, I tried it on WinXP on roommates 2.4 Ghz. I've got an ASUS P4S333 Motherboard, w/ 512 Mb memory. I can only set the AGP VGA to 4x max, but the card will go up to 8x.

I have two printers connected to a Dell E520 through Vista. They are a Brother 5440CN and a HP 6110xi. The .Brother works ok but I can't say the same for the HP. Clicking any button on the HP gives the same response. Beep, beep, beep. I have recently moved the system to a new location just a couple of feet from where it was. Before the move Brother would scan and copy and the HP would do the same, but now as noted I can't get any response out of it but beep, beep, beep
Anybody have any ideas??.

See if resetting the printer resolves the issue.

Beep codes are handled by your mobo I believe.
edit sorry misread your post. Can't be of help there. Might wanna call tech support, it should be free.
However, ThermalTake power supplies are on the list of bad PSU's I believe, if you can, return it and get a good model(Enermax, Ultra, etc).

Here is my problem I have a Compaq presario with a frozen bios screen but cpu ok, mem ok, video ok, nothing is conected and power supply ok.
Is the beep pattern just one short one long? Check your manual for the POST beep codes to determine what it is telling you. All POST beep codes are different so there's no way to tell unless we know exact model of your PC. The manual usually has the beep code in it, though.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f299/compaq-bios-freeze-short-beep-long-beep-624227.html
My tower is not booting up when I turn it on. My son took the side off and was going to put more memory in it for me, but in the end he didn't. He put the old memory back in and put the side casing back on. Today, when I turn it on, it has 1 short beep and 1 long beep. It just won't boot up. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get it back up and running?

I am trying to help with a Dell Inspiron 5100.
The computer was running very slow and I've made a bit of progress resolving that. I think it needs some more RAM and I'm not sure if that could be at all related to the following.
The problem now is that after running for few hours, then shutting down, then trying to turn back on:
1. light comes on indicating computer is on
2. the computer makes 2 beeps
3. wait...black screen
4. wait...black screen
5. and so on
This does not happen everytime trying to start the computer so I'm really at a loss. I've read about overheating in this model which would seem to make sense but sometimes this will happen after the computer has been off for a day or so.
At a complete loss now.
Any assistance much appreciated!
sure it's only 2 beeps? - nothing listed here for 2 beeps...

When you run HP service packs, they will expand and place their contents under an own directory within C:\swsetup.Specifically in your case, if you run sp74202.exe, you should see a new directory C:\swsetup\SP74202 has been created with the contents of the service pack within. Alternatively you can use 7-zip to peek inside the service pack exe without running it since the exe is a self extracting zip file that runs the installer once decompressed In any case, a newer ME update exists here but i'd first apply the latest system firmware update available here. When looking at the HP service pack links above, it's good practice to selectively click each "Description", "Enhancements", "Installation Instructions" "Release Notes" "Fixes" and "Revision History" tabs and read the information (some of it is repetative but you'll soon learn where to focus your attension). The contents of these tabs contain important and relevant information on what has been improved, fixed, which system it's for, how to install the update, etc. And if a previously installed SP is not listed in the "revision history" tab, that release may have been pulled by HP due to some fauly behaviour or other issue! Pay particular attension to the prerequisits as in some instances firmware updates have to be stepped (that is you can't always simply apply the latest). And if you read such boaring stuff, the system firmware (BIOS) Installation Instructions tab would have given you a clue where the sp files are expanded to Have you tried simply enter the command (as specified) via a command prompt window but changing directories to where the FWUpdLcl.exe file is located? Just keep in mind that sp74202 is the initial ME firmware release so nothing sould update So best to apply the latest system firmware (BIOS), then the ME firmware, then maybe the latest ME software (under chipset drivers). Best to bookmark this page which lists all the downloads for your z240 Windows 10 64bit tower system so check it out periodically.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Updating-Firmware-for-Z240/td-p/5575077

Blinking RED power light which turns to white blinking light. HELP!http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Boot-and-Lockup/HP-Z240-cannot-boot-with-16gb-RAM/td-p/5621704
